POPE PIUS X. PREPARING PLEA
FOR INTERNATIONAL PEACE
Rome, July 25. Pope Pius X., be
lieved on his deathbed a few months
ago, today is engaged in the prepara
tion of a plea for international peace
that will be the most important en
cyclical of his reign.
The encyclical will be issued form
ally August 9, the tetnh' anniversary
of the holy father's' installation as
successor to the late Pope Leo XIII.
The document will call upon the
Catholic church to enter upon a
(world-wide campaign for permanent
peace. It will call on archbishops and
bishops to begin the propaganda im
mediately, and will instruct the
legates to governments maintaining
diplomatic relations with the Vatican
to make formal representations to
the sovereigns of those nations, urg
ing their share in the movement for
universal peace among the Christian
peoples of the world.
WILL DECLARE MARTIAL LAW
IN COOPER DISTRICT
Calumet, Mich., July 25. Martial
law will be declared before night in
Michigan's copper country.
The governor has listened to the
cry of the mine owners and over
three thousand heavily armed troops
are now on their way here.
By noon tomorrow twenty-five
hundred soldiers will be mobilized in
the heart of the strike zone.
The presence of the soldiers is only
likely to make the situation more bit
ter and more bloody.
CITY OFFICIALS SEE GAMBLING,
BUT FAIL TO ACT
Terre Haute, Ind., July 25. Gam
bling and bookmaking went on un
der the eyes of sheriff, prosecutor
and mayor today; reporters were
slugged and threatened; two men
were robbed of $240 at the race
track; and yet the authorities Re
fused to act.
The official excuse for permitting
this state of affairs is that no one
made affidavits in regard to them.
The sheriff, mayor and prosecutor
doubtless do not commonly believe
Gov. Ralston is troubled with a
somewhat similar affliction. At In
dianapolis he said he could do noth
ing about the state of affairs, and
peevishly desired to know why local
residents here did not do something
themselves before appealing to him.
The politicians who have gam
bling concessions are indulging in
rude horse laughs. Especially happy
is Big Joe Jeffers, arrested last fall
for election falls. Big Joe succeeded
in slugging a reporter for The Post
today. So, of course he is happy.
Jeffers was arrested, but imme
diately released on bail. On similar
previous occasions nothing has been
done to Jeffers.

and arresting thirty.
When asked why they had charged
the workers, police said they feared
the workers MIGHT have caused
trouble when employes who had not
walked out with them took their
Benign Old Gentleman Poor little
chap! Where did that cruel boy hit
you? Tommy Boo-oo-oo! We were
